. >>> people who knew tamerlan tsarnaev say his life took a radical turn. a friend described it, quote, as dramatic. he and his younger brother were once known for throwing loud parties. he was a promising boxer with olympic aspirations. but that all changed when tamerlan became deeply religious. he gave up the sport, citing his muslim faith. his father was furious. he grew confrontational. he angrily disrupted a talk at a cam bridge mosque when the speaker compared the prophet hohammed and the peace activist compared him to martin luther king and tsarnaev also interrupted a tack last november when a speaker said it was fine to celebrate the safe way as the birthday of the prophet. the growing interest of religion by both tamerlan and his mother caused an upheaval in the household with tamerlan even persuading his mother to cover herself up. and so why the schachange? and did his trip to russia play a role in radicalizing this young man? joining me now is brian bender, national security reporter for the boston globe and clint van zandt. clint, what would you think would have caused suc

today. questions continue around tamerlan tsarnaev including what happened during six months abroad and caused his behavior to take a radical turn and did he slip under the fbi's radar. >> somewhere along the line it's fair to say why didn't the fbi follow up on that. fifth case i'm aware of where a person was brought to the attention of the fbi, fbi examined them and felt they were no threat and went to carry out terrorists murders. >> even as investigators continue their work, a funeral will be held this hour for one of the victims of the bombing, 29-year-old krystle campbell. massachusetts governor deval patrick will attend and at 2:50 p.m. eastern time bells across boston will ring to mark one week since those twin bombs went off just feet from the marathon's finish line changing so many lives in this that incident. joining me from washington, pete williams. let's talk about dzhokhar tsarnaev. he isn't talking yet but he's communicating. what more do we know about that and let's also talk about the issue of whether or not charges are coming today. >> okay. in terms of his commun
that must have been for him. then tamerlan the older brother, 26 years old in this family that we are learning a lot about this morning, the 26-year-old who is now dead was -- had bullet wound in the shootout with the police after he and his brother threw explosives out of their moving car. unfortunately they could not save him at the hospital in order to get nor or ou get more out of him. he he had shrapnel in his body. which leads everybody to believe he was going to set off another bomb in this nightmare that has gripped this whole area of boston and cambridge and watertown, wonderful towns in great state of massachusetts that have been rocked in a way they have never experienced before. this it is a very difficult day and he is still at large, so we will continue with our breaking news coverage of this story. joined now by jon scott and jenna lee as well. jon: what an incredible 18 hours it has been, martha. just since 5:00pm eastern time yesterday when the police released the pictures, the fbi released these pictures, to you will lee not these pictures, b but -- released thes
tsarnaev. an exclusive against tamerlan. a source in russia tells nbc news russian intelligence reached out to the fbi last november about the 26-year-old. and crime scene units are back at the bomb site in boston right now. they're placing debris into garbage trucks. crews were seen sifting last night throughout that debris. let's go to pete williams. with a good afternoon to you, pete, let's talk first about the status of the charges in this case and what the likely charges will be. >> yes, i think the odds are pretty good that we'll see these charges in the next couple of hours. they're putting the final touches on them now. and we expect to learn a little more about what the fbi has assembled based on its investigation of the bombing. so perhaps there will be some new details that we'll get. in terms of the charges, i would think at the very least they'll charge him with the bombing, with a terrorism offense for that. and interestingly enough, under the federal statutes, which apply here, use of a weapon of mass destruction, which is the federal law version of what a bomb is, if death r
fight on the streets of nearby watertown left one suspect dead. suspect number 1, tamerlan and started this massive manhunt for a second suspect. there were pipe bombs and homemade grenades thrown out of the car during that let's go back to catherine herridge. catherine, your impression of what we heard at this press briefing and whether this suspect, dzhokhar may have gotten outside this dragnet. >> i think there were four take aways from the news conference perhaps first and foremost that they believe is he heavily armed. we now know that 200 rounds were exchanged and they also had other explosives in that confrontation with police. given the change in the security posture, it would indicate that they belief he has left the immediate watertown area but they have got a search capacity to go back in if they develop new evidence that he has returned. what they said at the news conference is that his ties are to the watertown area and they do not believe he has any vehicle of his own. they believe he is still in the immediate vicinity. they also indicated that they have had several leads
says she was at work and assumed that tamerlan was watching her two and a half-year-old daughter, you know. clearly according to authorities at that point, that's not the case. >> who was watching the child? maybe the plot thickens? is somebody else involved? maybe tamerlan said i'm going to go bomb the marathon, can you watch my child? >> you know, who knows who was watching the child at this point. i'm not sure if the child was duly at this north kings townhome or was up in cambridge where i know they also had an apartment. the lawyer says that they actually lived here the vast majority of the time and also at this north kings townhome i'm told the younger brother, dzhokhar, he would also come on the weekends and spend a lot of time here in speaker when he wasn't as school. >> steve, thank you. coming up, do you know what your neighbors are up to? the man living right underneath an accused bomber tells us what he knows about him. he joins us next. also is the threat really over or were the accused boppers linked to foreign terrorists? groups gunning for the u.s. groups gunning for t
: eric shawn live in boston. eric, thank you. we are still trying to get to the real story on tamerlan tsarnaev's trip to russia last year and his possible ties to terrorism and islamic extremism. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge is following that thread tonight. >> the fbi's handling of tamerlan tsarnaev in 2011 and six-month trip to russia the following year now face congressional scrutiny. >> was your department aware of his travels to russia and, if you weren't, the reason? >> yes. the system pinged when he was leaving the united states. by the time he returned all investigations had been -- the matter had been closed. >> napolitano said the lookout system that flags agents federal investigation no longer active when tamerlan returned from russia in july of 2012. >> the system picked up departure but did not pick him coming back, correct? >> the fbi text alert on him at that point was more than a year old and had expired. >> napolitano's pluck contradict briefing given by the fbi director. >> after talking to the fbi they told me they had no knowledge of him leav
-year-old wife of the suspect who was killed in the police shootout, tamerlan tsarnaev. they have a daughter who's a toddler. chris lawrence has been talking to katherine russell's lawyer. chris, what are you learning about this young woman? >> anderson, basically her attorneys said that the first time she heard of all what had happened was by watching the news and that she had no idea at any time of what was going on with her husband. he says basically since those events she's been distraught, she's been crying a lot, that the family is basically in his words a mess. he says basically that right now she understands why federal investigators want to speak with her. they're trying to determine how much she may have known, but he is saying she didn't know anything about what was going on. anderson. >> people in the family's rhode island neighborhood i know have been saying that katherine russell started to change a lot kind of under this guy's influence, changed the way she dressed, the way she acted. what are you hearing about that? >> yeah. a little bit of context. we spoke with t
was a islamist extremist and believe in their cause. tamerlan tsarnaev travel oversees in 6 months, in 2012, that was not on the fbi radar that he misspelled his name on the travel records to deliberately disguise his travel or there was a mistake from the russian airline and it was not flagged to the bureau. >> fbi, and cia and every intelligence agency is scrambling to figure out what is coming next. who were they associated with? are these guys lone wolves? it was cleared they were tied to international terrorist groups in chechnya. are they tied to al qaeda? we don't know yet. >> reporter: law enforcement tells fox news one of the ways they were able to identify the brothers as suspects in the investigation through surveillance video not publicly released where you see the two brothers reacting in completely different manner than the rest of the crowd when the blast goes off. they do not turn toward the blast with some foreknowledge much what would happen and they continue on their way, jon. jon: what about their overseas ties for the two brothers, what are we learning about that? >> re
chechnya were raised in the u.s. but in recent years the older brother, tamerlan's, islamic faith had become stricter. he'd stopped smoking and drinking and given up boxing. his uncle said he noticed those changes several years ago and spoke to a family friend. >> last time i spoke with tamerlan, 2009, and i was shocked when i heard his words. his phrases. it wasn't devotion. it was something as it's called been radicalized. he said there is someone who brainwashed him, some newly convert to islam. >> 2011 the russian government did ask the fbi to investigate tamerlan. the fbi says it checked data bases, interviewed tamerlan and family members but, quote, did not find any terrorism activity, domestic or foreign. on sunday some lawmakers said the fbi may have dropped the ball. >> anwr alaki. now this case with the older brother. this is at least the fifth case i'm aware of where the fbi has failed to stop someone who ultimately became a terrorist murderer. >> then in 2012 camm etamerlan traveled to dagestan where his mother was from and both parents live now. he stayed there for six mo
charges and state murder charges. 26-year-old tamerlan tsarnaev had explosives strapped to his body when he died. also this hour a private funeral service begins for krystle campbell. bostonians are getting back to work today after a terrible friday, a lockdown that had much of this city shutdown. the suspect is in the hospital right now and handcuffed and under 24 hour guard. he is communicating with authorities. let's check in with don lemon. what's the latest you're hearing on his injuries and how communicative he's being? >> the only injury that we know about is to his neck. we're not sure as we have been asking investigators and people with knowledge of this investigation -- we're not sure if it was self-inflicted or because of the gun battle he had with police during that standoff. he is here at the hospital. he is still in serious condition. what we are -- one way he may be communicating, anderson, is because of what's known as a sedation holiday. we knew when he was sedated and intuba intubated. they ease off on the drugs so he does regain consciousness. we're hearing again that
. and the compassion and the values that define this country. >> the family of the wife of the older brother, tamerlan tsarnayev, released this statement friday. quote, " we cannot begin to comprehend how this horrible tragedy occurred." in the aftermath of the patriot's day horror, we know that we never really knew tamerlan sar-na-ev. it goes on to say that, "our hearts are sickened by the knowledge of the horror he has inflicted." the family has asked for privacy at this time. >> the eleven- year-old martinez boy who was injured in the boston bombings, aaron hern is steadily recovering. this according to administrators at his school, who have been receiving e-mail updates from the hern family. in the last few days, hern underwent surgeries at boston's children's hospital. first lady michelle obama even stopped by to visit aaron on thursday following the interfaith service in boston. and in a story you will only see here on kron four. besides sending hundreds of get well cards. aaron hern's classmates made a video to send him to show their support. friday, the entire student body at martinez junior h
who's an awlaki type guy. a preacher who tamerlan tsarnaev in his youtube account posts videos from, so he may have played a role in inspiring these, inspiring them or radicalizing them. but as i said, chris, we're a long way from finishing this investigation. >> so just to use your instincts as an investigative reporter, and you're a good one, the fact he said all this, he denied any connections to any networking. he basically said this was a self-radicalization, in other words. he said that they learned how to build these bombs online. if that turns out not to be true, then he has a bigger risk of the death penalty, is that what you're saying? >> reporter: sure. because then he's got cooperating with law enforcement, but he's also lost his leverage by saying this. it is in his interest to be able to tell them something. >> you think a lawyer, michael, would have told him to hold out until he got a deal? >> reporter: absolutely. absolutely. the one thing a lawyer is going to try to do at this point is to save his life. the one way to do that is show cooperation by pointing the fing
about these guys. >> well, they were opposite. the older one tamerlan was approachable but had a serious demeanor opposed to his younger brother more outgoing and he had a lot of friends. but it was nothing alarming they weren't socially awkward at all. more so tamerlan having a more serious demeanor, still wasn't anything alarming about him. just the way he carried himself. he did have friends. you can talk to him. and if you went up to him he would smile and speak to you and ask how you're doing. and two brothers being different they -- they still at the end of the day were positive people in that, you know, not now, but at one point they cared about people. they cared about this country. they cared about life. they respected it. >> those no signs of this violence or hate we've seen so much about since learning whot two are? nudge something. >> number none. none whosoever. i would see tamerlan after high school at the gym where he trained for boxing and at the supermarket. he was fine, cool, smile. woe ask how you're doing. but then i just i think the last time i saw him two, three yea
that the fbi has told you that they missed tamerlan leaving the country and going to russia because maybe his name was misspelled, that was one of the reasons given. we just heard from secretary napolitano that he did indeed, and these are her words, ping when he left the united states, and then the investigation seemed to be cleared during his time away. where ills the discrepancy? what is the truth? because it goes to the question, is our system working or isn't it? >> clearly it's not working. i'm dumbfounded wither 4 answer. i was told dar -- with her answer. i was told two nights ago in march they got a letter from the russian intelligence services that the older brother was a radical islamist, watch out for him. they claimed to have interviewed him. they interviewed his family. they went to the school he was attending and interviewed people. they sent the file back to russia in october of 2011, asked for more information and they never heard from them again and they claimed the system did not pick him going to russia in january of 2012 because the name was mis misspelled. now i hear fro
intelligence agency about tamerlan as early as 2011 and actually investigated him, questioned him about radical jihadi sympathies. it came from the russian intelligence service, and the fbi says they found no evidence of criminal activities and basically let the matter stand. now, what's interesting is in january of 2012, after getting that report, after doing that investigation, he flies to russia for six months. and then returns to the country and then shortly thereafter sets up this youtube account filled with radical jihadi postings clearly indicative of sympathies with that cause. now, that's not evidence of a crime. that doesn't trigger necessarily any charges, but it's going to raise questions about what the fbi knew and when they knew it. >> okay. michael isikoff, thanks so much. please stay put because next i'm going to ask you about any other accomplices and what officials are saying today about that. thanks, michael. >>> let's get more on the suspects' international links. i'm joined by richard engel. we're glad you're here. >> thank you. >> i loved what you said on "rock center" las
to speak today to the widow of suspected boston bomber tamerlan tsarnaev. they went to the home where kathryn tsarnaev had been staying. she refused to speak to the agents at the advice of her lawyer. that interview could take place sometime today. her husband was the suspect that was killed during the shootout with police. now our coverage of the boston bombings continues in just about ten minutes. coming up at 4:42 we'll have a live report from boston where federal prosecutors are reviewing evidence from the surviving suspect. don't forget stay with us throughout the morning but for my time of day for the boston bombings you can go to our website where we have a special section with more details. >>> police are investigating a shooting at an apartment complex south of seattle that left five people dead. when police arrived at the complex, they found two injured men on the ground. police say they shot one of the men after he reached for a gun. later police also found three other shooting victims were found inside the complex. police says it appears the shooting happened after a fight
, tamerlan tsarnaev, is dead. the younger brother in police custody at a hospital down the street from our location here after this tense and harrowing stand-off. he is listed in serious condition expected to recover. the suspect discovered in the backyard of a home in watertown after the homeowner noticed blood on his boat and part of a tarp removed. the stepson of the boat owner talked to greta late last night shortly after the arrest was made. >> the tarp on the boat, as you've described, had kind of lifted, which he found strange. he went over to the boat for a closer look. he found a strap that had been cut. not torn or worn through. it had been deliberately cut. he then was kind of stranged out by the whole thing. noticed a small amount of like blood in this area and then he took his little stepladder that he uses to enter and exit the boat. he went under the tarp, saw a small pool of blood, immediately there looked forward and because the tarp obscured a lot of sun line, it was gray and cloudy for ait here, he saw what he believed at the time to be a crumpled body, bloodied, in the
tsarnaev and tamerlan tsarnaev walking towards the finish line with backpacks, a second and crucial piece of video, the fbi says, comes from a surveillance camera mounted on this restaurant. at 2:42, court documents say the still unreleased video shows dzhokhar tsarnaev with a backpack walked towards the scene of a second bombing. at 2:45, he slips his backpack off. still photos show the backpack on the ground at his feet. when the first bomb goes off, the fbi says, the video shows the crowd looking towards the finish line in alarm. but the fbi says tsarnaev virtually alone among the individuals in front of the strauvent appears calm. he walks away, it says, without his backpack, and ten seconds later, the second bomb goes off in the spot where he left the backpack. the fbi says both the marathon bombs were made with pressure cookers and metal bee-bees. they contained hobby fuse similar to this. at the scene of thursday night's shootout in watertown, investigators say they found another bomb and hobby fuse and bee-bees. the fbi says they searched dzhokhar tsarnaev's dorm room and found be
haven't heard much from is tamerlan's wife. what sort of picture do we get of her and what potential information could she provide? >> well, of course, a key potential witness. immediate family members help paint that 360-degree profile of what happened from the time of the event backwards. here's a big however to consider, though. okay? not saying this is associated with the old al qaeda, but like-minded groups tend to pull good tactics off the shelf. in the case of the old al qaeda under bin laden, they were the masters of compartmentalization. we might not be surprised if he kept that information, if not all information, from his wife. now, there's a possibility that she may in some ways have been wh whitting. if he had that type of training, they're very good at the need to know. >> but this is an individual he had a relatively long relationship with. and you're suggesting that he might have been able to hide everything from her? any of his inclinations of hatred toward america if he had that feeling toward america? he would have hidden it all? >> yeah, these are the kind of thin
named tamerlan tsarnaev. and some of the first reporting on tamerlan tsarnaev that came out late last week after the bombing, the murder of his close friend brendan mess was described as really the only tragedy that we knew of his life in america. it was described as maybe one of the turning points in his life. but that murder is not solved. the thing that was notable about that crime in waltham, that triple murder, obvious lets notable. it was an unsolved triple murder. that itself is notable. but the other thing notable about this crime is it was a particularly brutal crime scene. these were three, fit, capable young men killed with stabbing injuries to their necks. and this murder was apparently drug-related, but not in the way that drug-related crimes are usually drug-related. >> there was a girl running out of the house, saying there is blood everywhere. and there is like marijuana all over the bodies apparently. >> marijuana all over the bodies. one of the three victims in that murder had been charged with marijuana possession and the intent to distribute a few years earlier. bu
the road where the two boston marathon suspects, tamerlan and dzhokhar tsarnaev were engaging in this gunfight with police. we'll scroll through a couple of these pictures. keep your eyes here on the screen. the photos here show the brothers huddling behind a stolen suv at times as we reported through the hours last week, shooting at police, before this older brother tamerlan charges, runs towards these officers here, then he's seen lying in the street. the suv driven by his younger brother who we know is in fair condition at this hour at a hospital here in boston, he's in the car, accelerates toward his older brother, on the ground. >> what is the context for that? do they believe he was trying to escape, do they believe he was trying to maybe separate his brother from the officers or is there anything on this? >> i think his brother was on the ground, his brother was enga engaging, strapped with explosives and the younger brother from everything i've gleaned wants to get out of there. >> maybe because of the explosives. what does he wind up doing? >> ultimately gets out of t
back last year to dagestan, tamerlan tsarnaev, the older brother, he went tries to chechnya to visit relatives. but she was struck by how he had embraced devoutly the islamic faith. here's what she had to say. is there a connection between this gun fight and one of the boston bombers? the youtube page suggests there might be. he put up a link to a video he put up a link to a video and it was removed, but cnn has now found it and it shows this man. it's an islamist militant. russian special forces hit his hideout last december to kill as many as six militants inside. the grisly aftermath showing heavy weapons, but also the heavy hand used to kill them. four months later, the marks remain of the tit for tat violence fueling militancy across the region. neighbors told us the young man who once lived here seamed peaceful, ordinary, but in the dust lies a question why did tsarnaev's youtube page link to the militant who died here. in a town where tsarnaev's father lived and tamerlan visited just last year. inside you can see just how intense the violence must have been and here could be t
. the older brother, as you mentioned in the beginning, tamerlan, his picture on the icio gun fight overnight with police in massachusetts. what really has authorities troubled, they have locked down the 20 square block area or so in watertown that we have been discussing and we think they have pinched in on the man in the white baseball cap, but they can't be sure. what has them most concerned is that these two brothers have shown quite a bit of skill, and evidence of training. one senior law enforcement official told us a short time ago, these guys were almost textbook perfect in terms of operational planning and security. they stayed off the radar, but beyond that, they have shown a high level of sophisticatifi sod skill in terms of evading police, and when they were confronted with a police shoot-out, incredibly, one of them escaped that cordon. he made the point that there were more police officer there and the suspects were outgunned. he summed it up by saying when have you ever seen that? they don't known he might have other confederates or other plans. the search, while focused in wat
question this morning is: how much did other members of their family know? keep in mind that tamerlan, the 26-year-old suspect who was killed on thursday night moving into friday, that he was married. he was married to an american woman who became a muslim after she married him. they had a three-year-old daughter together. it's questionable now whether or not they were actually still together at the time of this bombing. some sources are saying that she, catherine, pictured here, had moved back home with her mother, judith, with the baby. and maybe that would be when tamerlan ended up going back to russia for those six months because if you're married and you have a small child, you might wonder, that would be suspicious to be gone for six months. >>steve: she is on the cover of the new york post today because she always dreamed of growing up, joining the peace corps and serving this country and others abroad. then she got tangled up with this guy, converted to islam. next thing you know, she dropped out. there is an interesting item in the "wall street journal" today that says essent
